I bought a bag for my 6 & 3 year olds, they like the other apple straws. As soon as I opened the bag my car smelt like the lumber area at the hardware store. I reluctantly gave each kid a 'straw' and my 3 year old [who pretty much eats anything & everything] said yuck & my 6 year old said 'the salt tastes good but the rest is yucky'. When we got home I asked my dad what the bag smelt like & he too smelt the wood smell so the entire bag went into the trash can. Maybe just maybe we got a bad bag but I am not willing to try them again.
